— Our Team —

Niki Quintero

MARKETING + COMMUNICATIONS

Niki leads all things marketing and community, deepening engagement within our BB community.

Niki loves fresh flowers for any occasion, the ample use of emojis while texting, and firmly believes ketchup does not belong on the breakfast table.

With over 15 years of marketing & communications experience, Niki is also an enthusiastic home cook with a passion for organic, whole, unprocessed food, and loves that her job here at Balanced Bites allows her to combine both passions.

Niki creates the BB Insiders emails, & works closely with Diane to create new recipes for balancedbites.com, & Balanced Bites Meals.

Moriah Rieger

PROJECT MANAGEMENT + GRAPHIC DESIGN

Moriah keeps all of our projects and launches running smoothly, and creates the printed materials we share with our customers.

When she's not working, you can find Moriah either at home with her husband, daughter, and two huskies, or out adventuring in Colorado.

After spending time in management, running the editorial design department for her alma mater's school newspaper, Moriah's thrilled to be able to support Team Balanced Bites in all their projects, and making them the best they can be before they make it to your hands!

April LeMaster

SOCIAL MEDIA ENGAGEMENT

April is the one who you'll connect with most often through our social channels. If you need help or recommendations on spice blends, meals, snacks, or more, April is your gal.

Outside of her work with Diane and team, she has raised 3 sons, is a Master in Taekwondo, and volunteers for K-9 Angels Rescue Houston while living her best life watching sunsets from her house on the lake.

When Diane asks, “what light’s you up?” It’s a no brainer for April- her passion for dog rescue. Rescuing dogs from her local shelter, fostering puppies (over 200 have passed through her house!), and educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering.

April loves being a part of Diane’s team because she can work with people who share the same passion to help others to live a healthy lifestyle. Everyone on Team Diane is positive and encouraging, they are more like family.

Katie Weaver

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Katie manages the Balanced Bites customer support - have a question or concern about Balanced Bites Meals or Spices? She's your girl!

Katie loves to help others! With many years of experience in customer support roles, and her passion for small business, she’s thrilled to join the team.

Many years ago Katie and her husband followed The 21-Day Sugar Detox to rid themselves of their sugar cravings. The program kickstarted a healthier lifestyle for them. 

Katie loves to cook. Her favorite place to be is in the kitchen, whipping up a delicious meal. As a mom of three, it’s a priority to provide her family with healthy, nutrient-dense home-cooked meals. 

She enjoys trying new restaurants with her husband, fresh flowers on the table, and wine tasting.

Rebecca Brown

SOCIAL MEDIA + GRAPHIC DESIGN

Rebecca is one of our graphic designers and our social media content creator. She creates many of our marketing materials and you may occasionally see her on our Instagram page! 

Rebecca has lived with autoimmune disease for over 20 years. She was an OG listener of the Balanced Bites podcast and used many of Diane and Liz’s tips and tricks to manage her symptoms. She now uses a combination of real food and modern medicine to keep her autoimmune disease in remission.

Rebecca received her BFA in graphic design from Texas Christian University and started her career in the tech-start up realm. After discovering the benefits of real food, she transitioned to working for wellness brands that share her values. 

Rebecca lives in Kansas City with her husband and (two!) bulldogs. She thrives off movement like a daily walk, lifting weights, or yoga.
